New date and location for Bark in the Park.Pebble Tossers, The Act Bigger Foundation, and The LifeLine Animal Project are hosting "Bark in the Park", a dog-friendly event that is fun for the whole family with games, prizes, free food, and adoptable dogs! The event is open to the public and will take place at Keswick Park from 10 am - 1 pm. Volunteers are needed for set up/clean up, to staff different game and activity stations, to play with rescue dogs from LifeLine, to welcome guests, and to ensure everyone has a fun time! We have opened up this project to volunteers that are not yet members of Pebble Tossers. Please click here if you would like to volunteer but are not a member.In addition, W-Underdogs and The Act Bigger Foundation will be at the event. Volunteers are also needed to assemble and build dog houses out of recycled materials that will be distributed to needy dogs in the community. Helping keep dogs safe with dog houses is a step toward education against animal cruelty.
Our newest project is perfect for animal advocates. Pebble Tossers is now partnering with W-Underdogs and The Act Bigger Foundation to build dog houses in order to "break the chains".While rescuing discarded dogs, W-Underdogs is a nonprofit that teaches kids to develop their own voice and become local ambassadors with dreams of global solutions for the animals and the citizens of our world. The W-Underdogs' goal is to address the challenges that disadvantaged at-risk youth face and provide them with the skills and sense of accomplishment to help them overcome the challenges in their lives. They believe that the W-Underdogs program will energize the families, kids and in turn, contribute to a better community both short and long term. Volunteers will be assembling and building dog houses out of recycled materials that will be distributed to needy dogs in the community. Helping keep dogs safe with dog houses is a step toward education against animal cruelty. Volunteers under the age of 16 must have an adult with them. We may have dogs on-site looking wanting to be adopted or fostered.
Open Hand is now responsible for our former project with Meals on Wheels with Senior Connections. Volunteers are needed to deliver prepackaged meals to their homebound clients. The volunteers are quite often the only person a client may see that day, so that moment shared with the client is very meaningful. The 4th Saturday of each month, Pebble Tossers takes 2 routes with 7-9 households to visit. While we have only 2 volunteers are needed, this is referring to the number of drivers. You may bring as many people as you like to help with your deliveries. If you want to register your passengers' service hours, send an email to lisa@pebbletossers. This is a great project to do as a family or with friends. Drivers do have to be 21.After registering for the project with Pebble Tossers all volunteers must also create an account with Open Hand, click here for registration. You start at the Open Hand location on Armour Drive. If this is your first time volunteering with Open Hand you will participate in a short orientation and then you will be given your route.
